I like to joke with my boyfriend that he was “on the keto diet before Pinterest knew about the keto diet.” It’s probably true to some degree — he has been eating keto for several years… but didn’t know he was eating keto. Through his own nutrition research, he ended up adopting a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein diet and loves it.
I stumbled upon the keto diet in June of 2017 through Pinterest and said to him, “Umm, do you realize you’re on the keto diet?” Although the keto diet has been around for a long time, no one can deny it has exploded in popularity in 2018. He’s been pretty pleased with himself for adopting the keto diet before it went mainstream. 😉
In this post, I’m going to share his FAVORITE Keto Coffee recipe that he has been making for a few years now (and I’ve started drinking too even though I’m not full-on keto). Now that his diet has a name, I’ve started calling it “Keto Crack Coffee.” This stuff will get you ROCKIN’ in the morning! It has some similarities to the super-popular Bulletproof Coffee, but Keto Crack Coffee has a few special ingredients that make it stand out.
Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Keto Crack Coffee
Let’s make some Keto Crack Coffee! You will need a few ingredients:
Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
grab this at the store!
grab this at the store! (or, if you’re dairy-free like me, you can substitute it with nutpods Unsweetened Dairy-Free Creamer)
Death Wish Coffee
This is the star of the show and a critical ingredient for Keto Crack Coffee. Death Wish Coffee is an awesome coffee that bills itself as “The World’s Strongest Coffee.” It’s also organic and fair-trade (oh, and really good!).
Perfect Keto MCT Oil
MCT oil is loaded with healthy MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides), aka healthy fats. MCTs are a keto diet staple because you can put them in smoothies and coffee, on salads and veggies, etc. Use coupon code FORGETSUGAR20 for 20% off your order!
BetterStevia Liquid Sweetener
A convenient keto-friendly sweetener that has the best flavor of any liquid stevia I’ve tried (some are a bit iffy, but this one is great!).
Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract
A nice vanilla extract with a good flavor. I also sometimes use Trader Joe’s Bourbon Vanilla Extract.
All of those ingredients mixed together in the recommended amounts give you one awesome cup of Keto Crack Coffee:
What Makes Keto Crack Coffee So Awesome
- It’s super caffeinated. This stuff will get you hoppin’ like Tuco trying some of Heisenburg’s goods for the first time. (If you’re a Breaking Bad fan, you’ll get this reference. 🙂 )
- It’s full of healthy fats to keep you full.
- It has a nice sweet vanilla flavor without being too strong.
- The almond milk-whipping cream combo is the perfect mixture for a smooth keto coffee treat.
- It’s absurdly easy to make.
How to Make This Keto Coffee Recipe
Keto Crack Coffee is ridiculously easy to make. Gather your ingredients (check the recipe at the end of the post for the exact amounts), pour into your fancy coffee cup of choice, mix, then top with some Keto Whipped Cream if you’d like. (If you don’t want to make keto whipped cream, you can buy canned whipped cream from the store — just watch the carbs because they do have a bit of sugar in them.)
You’ll be rewarded with this beauty:
How to Make Iced Keto Crack Coffee
Note that this is a chilled keto coffee drink. If you’d like, you can add ice and make it an iced coffee drink.

Recipe images updated in July 2018.
- 4-6 oz Death Wish Coffee chilled (adjust amount depending on caffeine tolerance; see recipe notes)
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 10-16 drops liquid stevia (adjust amount depending on sweetness preference)
- 2-3 tsp MCT oil (adjust amount depending on desired fat intake)
- keto whipped cream (optional)
Brew and chill Death Wish Coffee.
Add all ingredients to a coffee cup or glass. Using a small whisk or coffee frother, blend until well-combined. The MCT oil will float to the top; this is normal.
If desired, top with keto whipped cream. (You can make your own using that recipe or or use a small amount of canned whipped cream.)
Important note about the caffeine content of Keto Crack Coffee: According to Death Wish Coffee’s FAQ, there are 54.2 mg caffeine per ounce. A typical Dunkin’ Donuts coffee has 12.7 mg per ounce, and a Starbucks coffee has 20.6 mg per ounce. This means it is very strong coffee. That is why the recipe only calls for 4 to 6 ounces, and please drink responsibly! (aka drink it slowly at first to test your tolerance)
If you don’t consume dairy, use nutpods Unsweetened Dairy-Free Creamer instead of the whipping cream.
Nutrition facts do not include optional keto whipped cream. Additionally, they are based on 2 tsp MCT oil, so if you use more, you will need to take that into account.
